There exist no monuments in Washington D.C. to acknowledge the thousands of American soldiers who fought valiantly and died for their country’s political interests. There are no annual parades, and little information in textbooks to shed light on the war.

Prison Gangs "Once inside, I was walked through a gauntlet of desperate men. Their hot smell in the muggy corridor was as foul as their appearance. None of them seemed to have a full set of front teeth. Many bore prominently displayed tattoos of skulls or demons. One could argue whether it was the look of these men that led them to prison or whether it was the prison that gave them their look. Just looking at them made me fear for my life" (Hassine, 7).

When we are at our success of knowledge or intellect, we blind our mind with our ambition, which comes along in reaching the knowledge or intellect.

The Hobbit5 The Hobbit Plot Many events and conflicts occurred in this story. In The Hobbit, I noticed conflicts such as Bilbo Baggins vs. himself, all the hobbits vs. Smaug, and Bilbo vs. the other hobbits. Bilbo was not readily accepted by the hobbits he was traveling with.

Progressive Historians One must decide the meaning of progressive historiography. It can mean either the history written by progressive historians, or it can mean history written by historians of the Progressive era of American history and shortly after.

The caveat is this: the focus of this report is on the pr
